Scorsese Presents Blues: Red White & Blues

Overview

Academy Award-winning director (and sometimes musician) Mike Figgis directs this look at the British blues scene, examining how it started, how it evolved, and how it later came to influence the growth of both blues and rock in the United States. Packed with fascinating anecdotes, which, unfortunately, don't always cohere into a satisfying whole, Red, White & Blues has been given a well-rounded presentation for its DVD release.

Overview

Academy Award-winning director (and sometimes musician) Mike Figgis directs this look at the British blues scene, examining how it started, how it evolved, and how it later came to influence the growth of both blues and rock in the United States. Packed with fascinating anecdotes, which, unfortunately, don't always cohere into a satisfying whole, Red, White & Blues has been given a well-rounded presentation for its DVD release. The documentary has been transferred to disc in letterboxed format at the widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1, while the audio appears in two formats: Dolby Digital 5.1 (in a surround sound mix) and PCM stereo (in an uncompressed two-channel version). Figgis also appears in an onscreen interview in which he discusses the film and his musical background, a subject he also touches upon in an optional commentary track. (A filmography for Figgis is also included.) Seven outtakes from blues sessions filmed at Abbey Road Studios for the film have been included as bonus material, though beyond Lulu's effecting version of "Cry Me a River" and sax-man Pete King's take on "Lush Life," most seem more like unfocused jams than anything else. A menu option allows viewers to cue up individual musical performances in the film. Other extras include a trailer for the documentary series and a commercial from Volkswagen, who sponsored the films.

    Great music for blues lovers

    The Dvd and the CD are a must for lovers of the blues. The "live sessions" with Tom Jones(who has a magnificent Blues voice) and Jeff Beck are great. I didn't know that Lulu of the old "To Sir with love" fame had a voice like she does. I think that these artists should record nother blues album together again and do it live.
